Yew Has Suddenly Started Drooping

Question From: M. Eure - Richmond, Virginia, United States
Q: One of my yews is suddenly drooping. 3 yews were planted in the late fall of 2016, two are doing fine, one is drooping. All three are in the same sun, soil and water conditions. I have attached photos of the "sick" yew and a healthy one, growing about 18 inches apart. What should I do?

A: Any chance anyone was using an herbicide in the area. I would take these photos and a sample the infected plant material to your local garden center or nursery that sells these plants for a more accurate ID. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
